    When I was in Boston, this look was huge. I was extremely surprised to see it. This and tieing your sweater around your waist. I think it's a big east coast thing.

    Here in Chicago, you'd have to have confidence to wear it. I passed a gentleman on the street with the over-the-shoulders-sweater with shirt and tie and thought he looked great. I've seen it here maybe once in 5+ years but he rocked it.

    I was looking for responses geared towards the colors and the matching.

    I think the trousers are too dark, the rest I like.

    They're the wrong trousers for that look. Should be pleats: no, cuffs: yes.

    And they could be a bit lighter, I'd agree.

    The colors appeal to me, but I'd wear a gray or tan trouser.

    I thought the same: trouser too dark.

    Mid to dark grey.

    Or a tan/camel.

    + 1.
    I would particularly favour tan or camel trousers.

    One of my history professors at uni (who was from the US) wore this sort of outfit almost every day. I must say that it really suited him, and he wore it well.

    PS I think that it would look better without the "white collar" shirt, as that contrasts uncomfortably with the more casual nature of the rest of the outfit.
